Experts, advocates, and grassroots and business leaders who work in both domestic and international arenas will gather to highlight key issues affecting women and girls. Speakers will focus on economic empowerment, health and wellness, educational opportunities, violence against women, entrepreneurship and innovation, and leadership and civic engagement.
